Sky Rogue PC Sky Fox Top Gun retro

New Game: Sky Rogue Mixes After Burner and Star Fox and is Coming to Steam

Alright, flat shaded polygon arcade shooters similar to Star Fox are not something we see all too often. Thanks to the team behind Sky Rogue, we can enjoy one more game in this genre. The big difference between Sky Rogue and Star Fox is the open, procedurally generated, world of Sky Rogue (and it runs a lot faster than the Nintendo classic).

New Game- Revolver360 RE:Actor Brings 2D/3D Scrolling Shooting To Modern Gamers

Anyone remember Philosoma on the originaly Playstation? The changing views with each level, the over the top graphics (for the time) were great. Well, Revolver360 RE:Actor has taken that style to a whole new level with a fully 3D game world but played from a 2D perspective. The video below illustrates this take on the genre really well.

New Game: Powerglove for Commodore 64 Released

Run and gun games really became a staple in gaming with the Nintendo Entertainment System and a little title named Contra. The Commodore 64 was not exactly overflowing with them but there were a few arcade ports (even a Contra game or two amongst them) that featured this style of gameplay. Powerglove, a new homebrew title, is looking to expand the run and gun category on the Commodore 64 on an actual cartridge- now it is available for more platforms.

Donkey Kong Country Doom Engine SNES

Bandit Gaming: Donkey Kong Country Recreated Using Doom Engine

The headline is not misleading in any way. A modder by the name of “DooMero” has used the Doom engine, specifically the GZDooM hack, to recreate Donkey Kong Country in a 2.5D side scrolling platformer. The results are quite interesting to say the least.

Razion NGDev Neo Geo Dreamcast logo

New Game- Razion Coming to Neo Geo, Possibly Dreamcast Also

The Neo Geo is quite an enigma, moreso than the Dreamcast console. Independent developers and publishers continue to support both consoles but with the Neo Geo it is a price issue and the fans seem to have no problem paying it. Razion is not going to be a budget title by any means, similar to Knight’s Chance, there is going to be a severely high, according to everyday Joe values, price tag attached. The question is, are gamers tired of scrolling shooters on both platforms? We will find out later this year when MVS owners get a chance to purchase Razion.

AD&D Heroes of the Lance box

Revenge of the License: AD&D Heroes of the Lance

Admit it, you knew this was coming. Maybe not today, maybe not next week, but you knew, at some point, I was going to dig into the hog waller. If that’s what you’ve been waiting for, retro gaming fans, then today’s your lucky day. Rejoice. Clap your hands. Give the ol’ banjo a tune-up. Because today I dipped my hands into the muck, and I came up holding  the royal, diamond-encrusted, jellyfish-immortal turd of all turds in the Nintendo Entertainment System’s library: Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of the Lance. Do you have any idea how much I hate myself just for writing that last sentence?

 

 

SLaVE Isotope Softworks GOAT Store Sega Dreamcast Doom FPS

New Game: Sega Dreamcast to Receive SLaVE in 2015

We recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Sega Dreamcast, as we enter the next 15 years we will continue to see more new games released. First Person Shooters (FPS) were a genre that was rather popular at the time of the Dreamcast launch, a genre that is still popular, and indie developers are more than happy to continue creating them. The problem with most FPS titles is originality- we have been to war torn countries throughout history many times, other planets, ships and more. SLaVE is quite possibly what would happen if Doom were to meld with Robotron 2084 (just 70 years away folks, will be here before we know it).

New Game: Flappy Bird Ported to the Amiga CD32

Flappy Bird has been making the rounds quite a bit in the retro gaming world (as evidenced here). The Commodore Amiga CD32 is now added to the list of platforms this little, infuriating, game has hit. The CD32 version has some much appreciated differences versus the other ports though, maybe just enough to entice gamers to give it another shot.

Bandit Gaming- Alien Breed 3D 2- The Killing Grounds Ported to the Amiga CD32

Everyone knows the Amiga CD32 was kind of the black sheep of gaming, much like the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, and there weren’t a lot o games released for it. Decades later game hackers have been working on unoficial ports of Amiga games. For those that do not know, the CD32 is basically an Amiga 1200 minus keyboard, mouse and monitor (the CD32 hooked up to your television). One new release is the last Alien Breed game to grace the Amiga platorm, Alien Breed 3D 2- The Killing Ground.
